Best Supporting Actress:
will win for her powerful performance as the cruel and damaged mother in Precious.
Best Supporting Actor:
"Relative unknown Christoph Waltz
won the Best Actor award at Cannes for Inglourious Basterds
and has never looked back."
"Few people saw this one coming, but Sandra Bullock
made a dazzling comeback in the Blind Side
. I think she'll win."
"I pick Jeff Bridges
for Crazy Heart.
His great performance swept the Critics' Awards, and I think [he] has the momentum."
"The only dicey category is Best Picture. Up in The Air
was the early front-runner, and Avatar
could win after its record-breaking profits. But I think it's a win for Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker
"I also pick Kathryn Bigelow
for best director. If you vote against her, you'll be going against years of precedent that say the winner of the Directors Guild Award will win the Oscar. "
